Internet Archive,

Please keep your eyes out for anything with silent film actress Louise Brooks. Take one look at her and you will know that she is well worth preserving. Even in her still shots she conveys an incomparable poignancy. Her body language and mouth are that of a confident, beautiful woman, yet her incredibly sensitive eyes reveal a most child-like vulnerability that has been subliminally short-circuiting men for nearly 100 years. I can't wait to see her on film, especially the work she did in Weimar Germany in the twenties.
